Re: Rottefella Move System

With newer I meant NIS 2 yes. I asked Skistart.com today, and they said any NIS binding is compatible with the Move system. That would include also the NIS compatible Rossignol Turnamic IRB. With the latter, one would have two knobs per ski to turn. Better turn the right one when shifting binding p...

Rottefella said earlier that only NIS 2.0 bindings would work with the Move System. Is it really so that any NIS binding works?

Re: NN-75 specifications

I have just discovered yet another NN binding version. It is an Edsbyn Comet Medium from the 1970's that is 78 mm wide and features what I believe to be the unusual screw hole pattern 28-45 (width-length) with the pin line 25 mm in front of the rear screws.

The Move System's binding plate, NIS 2.0, together with the binding Rottefella Performance Classic cost 156 $ at www.xxl.se.

Re: Classic vs Skate Roller Ski Tracking

Got answer that they do indeed let people test skis for a couple of days which is great, so i might do that. Btw, how did you know about this? I read on their website about their arranging demo events with free testing, but I didn't know that they would borrow you roller skis for your private testi...

Re: Classic vs Skate Roller Ski Tracking

Yeah I just got back from using them. It seems to me that after a few double pole pushes to get going on a relatively flat surface, that I make a slow right hand turn -- well before going 10meters or so. OK, I think you should try to align the wheels with something like Neuro suggested. Siriro has ...

Pat, have you had the opportunity to test how much your roller skis fail in tracking?

Re: Classic vs Skate Roller Ski Tracking

Thanks for the tip, I've sent them a mail if it's possible to demo the skis. You're welcome. I believe they have special official events with roller ski demos in the same way e.g. Alewalds has here in Sweden, but maybe they can arrange something just for you. I would especially recommend you to tes...

Re: Classic vs Skate Roller Ski Tracking

Yes the Jenex forks look to be thinner, but as the Woodskis already have tracking issues I would guess it's because of this design. Although not a specialist and limited selection, Oslo Sportslager is the best shop in town, but never heard they have skis to try unfortunately. I would likely have to...

Re: Ski binding without Pozidriv?!

I was a little melodramatic, but there actually is an international standard for binding screws: https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:std:iso:7794:ed-3:v1:en

Re: Classic vs Skate Roller Ski Tracking

Same type of forks I'm having tracking issues with on Jenex V2s. Are not your forks thinner than those on Woodski Skate? According to rollerski tests I've read (and even snow skis), tracking is really a big part of what separates the good from the bad, and those that do well here typically have thi...

Re: Classic vs Skate Roller Ski Tracking

Woodski is the manufacturer -- seem to be nice quality, light weight, and have a functional brake and slow wheels. Interesting. Is it Woodski's current skate model with aluminum forks? http://www.woodrollerski.com/shop/skate-skis/ Birch is a very good shaft material, even solid and unlaminated, lik...

Ski binding without Pozidriv?!

I have not discovered this until now, but Fischer did something dreadful with its Turnamic Skiroller (as they insist calling it) binding: they included Torx screws instead of the unquestionable Pozidriv! What heresy! Fischer has no tradition making bindings, and it shows!

You are welcome, Pat, as always. What brand and model did you buy? Have you checked their tracking on a flat road?

Re: Gignoux Carbon Ski Boots

I think this ski boot looks both ugly and uncomfortable, almost like a shoe of a medieval armour.
